Tottenham are willing to let Christian Eriksen join Real Madrid in January if Luka Modric moves in the other direction, according to reports in Spain.
Eriksen was linked with the La Liga leaders during the summer but ended up staying with Spurs. However, his future remains uncertain having entered the final year of his contract. He will be allowed to discuss pre-contract terms with foreign clubs in January.
Earlier this week, we relayed a story suggesting Real Madrid have re-entered talks with Eriksen’s agent, though it was unclear whether those discussions concerned a January move or a free transfer next summer.
Now, Spanish outlet El Desmarque is claiming the Spanish giants want Eriksen in January, but they may have to let Modric return to Tottenham if they are to sign the Dane. It is believed everyone at Real Madrid is happy for the swap to take place… apart from Zinedine Zidane.
The Frenchman apparently wants to sign his countryman Paul Pogba from Manchester United instead of Eriksen, which could prove to be a major stumbling block in Spurs’ attempts to seal a dream reunion with Modric.
Would you allow Eriksen to leave in January if it meant Modric come back? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
